The Lending Cupboard is filling up and staffers are seeking to sell surplus medical equipment


2 minute read

We at the Lending Cupboard are always very grateful for the tremendous community support we receive from residents across the Central Alberta region.

That support has led to an unusual situation – we actually have too much stock at our facility these days. To that end, we are featuring several valuable pieces of medical equipment for sale.

The purpose is two-fold – to decrease our current inventory and make way for all kinds of items that our community truly needs, but also to provide important and much-needed devices at extremely reasonable rates.

Examples of items for sale run the gamut from bath stools ($29.50 including GST), bath transfer benches ($84 including GST) and various walkers/rollators ($36.75 including GST).

“First of all, we always want the community to know that loans of equipment will always continue – people will always be able to borrow equipment when they need it,” explained Dawna Morey, executive director of The Lending Cupboard. “Our primary goal is to remove barriers to receiving that equipment.

“In the meantime, we have also found ourselves overstocked – as a result of excess equipment that has come back to us through either generous donations from the community or perhaps because of loved ones who have passed on.

“We also understand that there are people who need equipment over the longer term. They may need it for more than six months, or for more than a year. So we would like to make that equipment available to them on a permanent basis by offering them the ability to purchase it at a reduced cost,” she said.

“Prices have been set at a fair market value, and information about that can be obtained through our office.”

For inquiries, please feel free to reach out to us.
